Portupgrade has the advantage that it can use binary packages to upgrade
your system. portmaster can create them (by adding the -g option) - but
not use them. This is the reason we use portupgrade at work where we
have several FreeBSD servers which shares /usr/ports.

No problem at all. You can even have both installed. If you upgrade your
outdated port with portupgrade, portmaster will not try to upgrade it
and vice versa, unless you force it to (which makes no sense).
